obama was a new united states senator in 2005. nelson mandela, world statesman, retired from public life, but still the proud father of a new south africa. that meeting in washington was mr. obama's only opportunity to tell mandela in person how he inspired his own political activism. >> my very first political action, the first thing that i ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics was a protest against apartheid and like so many around the globe, i cannot fully imagine my own life without the example that nelson mandela set and so long as i live, i will do what i can to learn from him. >> during mr. obama's first trip to south africa as president in june of this year, serious consideration was given to a meeting with mandela at the hospital, but even then, he was far too frail and mr. obama huddled instead with the family inside this compound. then brought him to the prison. mr. obama referred to mandela by his south african name of endearment. madiba. >> madiba's words give us a compass in a sea of change. >> with mandela's passing, the president said others must now hol

. it's 5:00 in new york city, and this is "the five oi." it's day two of obama on offense. try to link the gop to the problem of his botched health care rollout. >> between a reckless shutdown by congressional republicans in an effort to repeal the affordable care fact and admittedly poor execution on my administration's part in implementing the latest stage of the new law, nobody's acquitted themselves very well these past few months. so it's not surprising that the american people's frustrations with washington are at an all-time high. >> but not everyone is buying what he's selling. charles krauthammer thinks the president is out of touch. >> obama thinks that he can repeal reality with rhetoric. his trouble is he has trouble governing. and he's faced with a management problem, a government problem. he passed a bill that is so complex, the regulations are so complex and contradictory, he's got a website that is not functioning correctly. and he thinks that if he makes the right speeches, he says the right words, somehow it will change perception. but he runs up against the wall. >>
